Welcome to Cardboard Caucus!

We had a GREAT inaugural year and we are working on planning for 2020! Check our website and social media pages for more info on dates, times, etc.


Central Iowa's newest tabletop convention! We are looking to host a great event that will give you a great place to sit down with friends (or maybe someone new!?) and play some great games. This is our first year and we are VERY excited to be bringing a tabletop convention to Des Moines.


Thank you to those that preregistered - this has helped us plan the best possible event!

If you missed badge pre-sales, don't worry! There are still a limited number of badges that will be available at the door. Just come to the registration desk and buy your badge when you get here, but come early before badges run out!

What sets us apart as the BEST convention?

You! You being there is what makes our convention the best convention around!

If you have ideas you'd like to share to help us make the convention better for you - please reach out to us at

Library and Play-to-Win

We are excited to have Board Game Wagon provide our open gaming library. They will have a selection of more than 1500 games for you to choose from! We will also have play-to-win games (play a game to get entered into a drawing to win a copy of that game).


Kids 10 and under get in free - but are not able to win Play-to-Win games without a badge


The best place to park is on the north end of the building, where there is a separate entrance for our convention!
